Veterans and active duty volunteers have a unique perspective gained from their military experience, and as such, they are able to provide understanding and camaraderie to our veteran patients. As a Level 4 Participant in the "We Honor Veterans Program," we strive to serve the unique needs of our veteran patients. We do this through our Veteran-to-Veteran Volunteer visits, as well as community education programs that focus on the special needs of veterans at end of life.

Compassus is a community-based hospice; as part of our team, you will travel to skilled nursing and assisted living facilities, and/or private homes throughout northern Virginia. Assignments will be kept close to your home or work and hours are flexible, based on your availability. We simply ask you to commit to several hours each week for at least one year. A background check, TB test and attendance at orientation are required and provided. Whether you have had a personal experience with hospice, feel a calling, or want to add greater meaning to your life.... we would love to hear from you!
